Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and before the summary and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. 24-A MRSA §2916,  as enacted by PL 1973, c. 339, §1, is amended to read:

§ 2916. Automobile insurance, cancellation, nonrenewal and certain changes because of age, prohibited

No An insurance company authorized to transact business in this State shall may not refuse to issue, cancel or refuse to renew, reduce liability limits , refuse to renew for or increase the charge a higher premium of any automobile insurance for a policy of any kind whatsoever for the sole reason that the an applicant for coverage, a person to whom such policy has been issued or another insured driver has reached a certain age.’


This amendment replaces the bill. The amendment clarifies that an insurer may not refuse to issue personal automobile insurance for the sole reason that a person has reached a certain age and clarifies that the prohibitions of certain actions based solely upon age apply to an applicant for coverage as well as to existing insureds.
